Speed Freeks

Speed Freeks | Games Workshop Webstore

It's up for pre-order now and looks as though it could be a lot of fun.  It reminds me of a racing game that my gaming group created to play during lunch hour when we were at secondary school.

If you folks are wondering how the game plays, my buddy Ash has a review copy from Games Workshop, and has put up a let's play video. Looks like a fun little game.

Looks pretty cool! These minis will be usable in a regular WH40k game as well, right? I've been thinking about dusting off my orks once the codex is out and it might be nice to buy some new vehicles.

Yeah, all the new buggies are in the codex, and all the new buggies have speed freaks rules. I think though, that the two in the box might not be sold separately however.

Looks like my kind of game. Too bad it doesn't come out for a whole year!!! (10-27-2018)

 Hope it is not a lame reincarnation of gorkamorka. I will get one when I see it will actually show up in a couple weeks. (I don't like to wait too long for mail order stuff)

Now, on the other hand, new buggies are now on my radar. I have sent out my grots and meks to procure some for the future fifth army of gofasta orks.

Hmmm, maybe I should just skip 5 and 6 and go straight to 7th so I can plagiarize certain calvary symbols and icons....

Well, then.... I guess I read the date wrong. Three days you say? Should give me just enough time to convince she who must be obeyed that I really need this. ;)
